Mukesh Ambani – New Role in Reel

India’s leading Industrialist Mukesh Ambani, CMD, Reliance Industries is now entering the world of Bollywood. According to sources, India’s Energy giant Mukesh Ambani and czar of Bollywood Yash Chopra might join hands to produce a film in the near future.
Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Retail and Yashraj Films may float a 74:26 JV to set up multiplexes, run entertainment channels and produce soap operas for television. The new company formed out of this JV will use the upcoming malls of Reliance Retail nationwide to set up multiplexes.
“I love watching Bollywood movies and Yash Chopra is one of my favourite filmmakers. I have always believed that he has a Midas touch”, said Mukesh Ambani, Chairman, Reliance Industries. Mukesh Ambani has been a fan of Yash Chopra’s films since his younger days. It is said that despite the fact he has to spend lot of time in his business, he still finds time to watch latest movies with his family and friends in his Sea wind home.
The business tycoon is willing to invest a whopping amount of Rs. 200 Crores for this new venture. “Everything is at the nascent stage and no company will be forthcoming to talk about it right now,” says a source.
This move yet again demonstrates the diversity and flexibility of Reliance Industries to explore unknown territories. Mukesh Ambani may well bring about a revolution in the entertainment industry. With the amount of investments he would bring in, who knows, an Indian equivalent AVATAR may hit the box office very soon.
